To purchase a model with one or more of the options below (that are not offered above) please contact us via email or call us at 800-480-0707 for price and availability.

Self-testing - The unit can come with self-diagnostic testing that eliminates monthly and yearly testing of the battery backup system and alerts the user to any problems regarding operational functionality of the unit.

Nickel Cadmium Battery - The unit can come with a nickel cadmium battery. A step above the standard sealed lead calcium batter, Ni-Cad batteries have a 5-7 year lifespan, are easier to replace, and decrease shipping weight.

Voltmeter - This option gives a visual display of the voltage condition/level of the battery.

Ammeter - This option gives a visual display of the current that is being consumed by the emergency light at all time.

Time-Delay - This option is ideal for installations that are utilizing fluorescent and HID lamps for general lighting purposes. The time delay feature keeps the emergency lights ililluminated for a preset period (usually 15 minutes) after power is restored since fluorescent and HID lighting can take 10-15 minutes to reach full brightness, even after a short power failure. Please specify 120 or 277v AC connection.

Internal Battery Heater - For freezing environments, the internal battery heater option will allow the emergency light and its battery backup system to function properly even when temperatures drop below 32 F. Please specify 120 or 277v AC connection.

Cord Set - If you need to plug your emergency light into the wall purchase the cord set option that allows you to connect your emergency light to any standard 120v AC outlet.
